The art of making lace began in the 15th century and the feminine fabric has stood the test of time. Lace fabric adorns bridal gowns, hair accessories, dresses, blouses and shoes. There are many styles, from delicate crocheted designs to knotted, knitted and machine-made styles.
Lace fabric is ideal for shabby chic home decorations, including doilies, curtains and table linens. It is also quite versatile, even showing up on clerical robes.
